Science, technology and maths can be so much more than equations on a piece of paper.
That's according to the co-founder of F1 in Schools, who is urging secondary students in the South East to take part in the STEM education programme.
The STEM challenge lets a group of students create their own Formula One team, where they design, engineer and race their own car against each other, with the winners progressing to the world finals in the UK next April.
Speaking to Beat News, F1 in Schools co-founder Aaron Hannon says it's a way to make subjects fun;
"What we're trying to do is to try and bring the creative process behind science and tech into real life and into classrooms in Ireland.
Essentially, we're letting people discover new concepts, learn how to be an engineer and to be a scientist and be involved in the design process but doing that in a challenge that's really fun, exciting and ultimately competitive."
